Misinformation Online

Waingels is committed to promoting the safe use of online/digital communications by all students, parents and staff.

With more people using the internet than ever, fake news (misinformation) continues to spread quickly.  It is often difficult to be able to determine what information is real and what should be treated with caution. This ‘misinformation’ can take many forms, from social media posts to what may look like official news or other online publications.

The below poster aims to offer some guidance on how to handle potential misinformation concerns and how to provide your children with some strategies for forming their own independent conclusions.

Identifying and tackling misinformation is more important than ever and I hope you find the attached guidance useful.
